The S.I.G.I.T Lyrics

Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Look baby I'm out my mind
Some screws loose but tell the truth boo I'm one of a kind
And you know I'm right so come on baby tell me what's going on
Why you acting nonchalant with my whole world up in your palm
You know it's wrong up until dawn pointing the blame at each other
Then afterwards we're hitting the covers like some long lost lovers
This life of ups and downs look around we got it made
It's just insanity with the games you always wanna play
I say no way I'm gone
I can't help it when you hate me
And I just can't keep on waiting
All this time I keep on wasting
And I just don't have the patience
I can't help you drive me crazy
All my life I keep on waiting
All this time I keep on wasting
And I just don't have the patience
Look baby you out your mind
Some screws loose but tell the truth boo you're one of a kind
And it feels so right when you're by my side every single day
I'm stuck on stupid every time you wanna go away
Cause this is fate something's missing and I feel so lost
Told myself not to love and now I pay the cost
It's all my fault and all I wanna do is scream and yell
Without you cussing me out my life has been a living hell
I know it's wild but you're the one and yes it feels so good
Got me sprung and now I got this all understood
You know you should just take off your clothes let me take it on home
That break up to make up just got me all gone
I'm loving your body I'm loving your soul
Feinding all day I'm feeling you strong
Moving along like I'm writing a song
Never go soft when I'm breaking you off
Hitting the club and then we go stunt
My ride or die we gonna make it all bump
This the way we gotta be
Perfect life you ought to see
Me and you a lot of trees
Happiness constantly
I can't help it when you hate me
And I just can't keep on waiting
All this time I keep on wasting
And I just don't have the patience
I can't help you drive me crazy
All my life I keep on waiting
All this time I keep on wasting
And I just don't have the patience

Overall Meaning

The S.I.G.I.T's song "All the Time" is an exploration of the relationship between love and material possessions, particularly in the context of hip hop and street culture. The opening verses describe the singer's obsession with "choppin' blades," a reference to the custom modification of car engines popular in Southern hip hop culture. The car itself becomes a symbol of wealth and success, "all the corners bent to get paid," but ultimately the singer acknowledges that material possessions "truly mean nothing if you've never been in love." The song explores the tension between the desire for material success and the deeper emotional fulfillment of love.

The middle section of the song shifts to a more abstract and poetic tone, with references to candy colors and Willy Wonka wrappers. The singer describes himself as "screwed up, zooted up, double cup too," a reference to the use of lean, a prescription drug that has become popular in hip hop culture. The contrasting images of wealth and decadence, beauty and destruction, are woven throughout the lyrics, creating a vivid sense of the contradictions inherent in the singer's life.

The song's chorus repeats the idea that material possessions are meaningless without love. The final verse adds a note of melancholy, as the singer acknowledges the threat of violence and danger that comes with his lifestyle. "Coming down ain't quite all it seem," he sings, acknowledging the "jackers on lurk and law's contained." The song ends with an enigmatic reference to "neon minks," leaving the listener to ponder the strange and shifting romantic landscape of hip hop culture.
